Are you an unpaid carer?

Do you do any of the following for a loved one, parent, family member, neighbour or friend?


Pay Bills



Emotional support

Washing and dressing


Organise medicines and medical visits


If so, then you are a carer and are entitled to support to help you in your caring role. This can include 1 to 1 advice, support groups with other carers, training, and help with costs.

Here at Glenside Country Practice we are committed to making sure carers are given the chance to obtain any support they feel they need, be it simply information and advice to emotional support and benefits.

If you would like to know more, the Practice has 2 Carer Champions, 1 at each of our sites – Michelle at Corby Glen and Dawn at Castle Bytham - who can give you further information, or you can call the Lincolnshire Carers Service at the County Council Customer Service Centre (CSC) on:

01522 782224 –   Adult Carers 18+

01522 553275 –   Young Carers

Both numbers are available Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm

Carers FIRST is an organisation which offers emotional and practical support to carers, and after your initial contact with CSC you can be referred onto them for further assistance.

It is important to know that you, as a carer, can have the support you need.

Named GP for over 75s

As of April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their registered patients aged 75 and over with a named GP, who will have overall responsibility for their care and support. 

We will write to all patients in this age group informing them of their named GP. 

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP or Nurse in the practice as you currently do.


Accountable GP

All patients registered at the practice, will be assigned an accountable GP.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
